Law360 (March 19, 2020, 6:30 PM EDT) — A Florida appeals court ruled Wednesday that a wrongful death lawsuit against Palace Resorts Inc. over a deadly assault at a Cancun resort can stay in Miami, rejecting the resort company’s efforts to move it to Mexico.

In a unanimous decision issued without an opinion, Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court’s ruling that denied Palace Resorts’ bid to move the suit to Quintana Roo, Mexico.
